door ajar light always on

My door ajar light has been acting up lately. At first, it would say door ajar for a few minutes and then it would just go away. This happened a few times. Well yesterday I am going for a nice drive to take some pics of my truck, and the door ajar light comes on. This time it was different. It stayed on for good. When I would park my truck and lock and shut the doors, the dome light would stay on. So for now I pulled the 26 fuse while my truck is parked, i just pop it back in to drive.

My question is where is the sensor for the door that says if my door is ajar or not? (a pic would be helpful)


I want to fix this but I dont wanna snip the wires since I need the dome light when I open my doors.

SEARCH is your friend, my friend. Just spray a **it-load of WD40 in the door jamb portion of the door, where the latching mechanism is located.

Its located on the door latch,try the wd40 trick,and if not then you need to replace the switch,which is not a big job

it not work the first few times you spray it in there, like it will go away for a few days or a week or something and then come back but if you keep doing it it will go away.
